I hate to cook

I don’t know how I got to this place. I used to cook for 8 people (and a dog) back when I was a stay at home mom with five children, hubby and father-in-law. I cooked three meals a day and not quick meals either. Even chicken cutlets were family sized….25 cutlets at a time, with potatoes and veggies, salad and bread.

Bread…I made homemade bread and soups (no crockpot either). I baked every week also. We had a freezer downstairs to store all the perishable foods like meat, because with a large family we just couldnt go shopping everyday.

Now that I am retired and have all the time in the world, I am looking for quick and easy dishes to make – of course it is just hubby and me. So how much should I really cook. Actually, if the truth be known – I love to go out to eat. I have also become a small eater….not able to devour food like I used to. So even going out means eating half and bringing home the rest for lunch the next day.

And of course, the price of eating out is enormous so we can’t do it often. Special occasions usually and once in a while going to a diner for breakfast. I try to keep enough in the house that if I don’t feel like cooking (which is everyday) I can whip together some sandwiches or even egg omelets.

Are you fond of cooking? Or have you reached the same point as me?
